Xiaomi’s Mi 8 Pro Hits The UK, And You Won’t Believe The Price

Today, Chinese giant Xiaomi signalled its intentions to enter the UK market with a series of products at super-competitive prices.

The big news was the arrival of the Mi 8 Pro, Xiaomi’s flagship handset which comes with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 6.21″ AMOLED FHD+ display and an in-screen fingerprint scanner – all for £499.

Xiaomi’s phones are famous for being cheap and powerful, but many doubt that the company could keep its prices low outside of China. The Mi 8 Pro being less than £500 proves that it can, and we imagine it will have rivals like OnePlus feeling seriously nervous. The OnePlus 6T suddenly has a significant competitor on UK soil.

The Mi 8 Pro has been turning heads since its launch this year in China, but up until now those living outside of Xiaomi’s homeland have been forced to turn to Chinese resellers and risk paying high import fees. Now, it’s going to be possible to purchase the company’s leading phone without having to worry about any of that – and you’ll have a valid UK warranty to boot.

Xiaomi also revealed that it is releasing its Mi Band 3 fitness tracker for a bargain-basement price of £26.99, and is also bundling it with the Redmi 6A for a stunning £99, exclusively through UK network 3.

That’s not all – Xiaomi is also opening its first UK store on November 18th, at Westfield White City in London.
